's. no longer popeye's kitschicken. now it's popeye's louisiana kitchen. let's get to the tweet. jim's tweet. yes. i tweeted this. love this camaro which happened to be in westhampton. i was looking at it with my friends miguel and lisa. and, lisa, what year is it? i think it could be a '68. i am not sure. within maybe ten minutes, our tweet friends, my followers, were so fast they gave me every little detail. this is clearly a '67, people. not a '68. you know what? i love the guessing game and it worked on twitter. one of the many brilliant responses came from out counter hedge. could one spend nine months living in it? that's the question. very important. do you see this? this is a soft top. my 1977 fairmont that i lived in was a hard top. this is a very cramped backseat. no room for your jack daniels. no room for your hatchet. hard to find your gun. my fairmont had room for all those. i say this is a studio versus my one-bedroom car. now, we have a tweet from @joecurly who writes one of the first "mad money" episodes i ever watched you recommended facebook. fb. under 26, i bought it, than
was in jail in louisiana for a demonstration. your father stood in his place and then later succeeded him as chairman of core. so you're not only fighting in north carolina as a state legislator, you grew up in the family of one of those that represented the six convening organizations 50 years ago? >> yes. and it's wonderful to be a part of that legacy. i mean, they all fought 50 years ago for the voting rights act, what became the voting rights act. and we've seen people in this country be able to exercise that privilege in increasing numbers. we've seen many african-american and women elected to public office. but it's sad to see what the supreme court has done recently. because with section 5 eventually being made null and void until congress does something, and congress is at a stalemate, i'm afraid that we could see a reversal in terms of those that are holding public offices and return to the types of practices which existed before there was preclearance under section 5 of those practices which in the past had been used to deprive african-american and others of the right to vote. >
